ok, i was thinking of doing xianghua for AX'05. the outfit i was thinking of is the one w/ the um..pedal pushers or whatever u call them and halter top. but i realized, in the game, her top is a light blue and pants are a darker blue. then i found a pic of her on the game's official site and her top's white whereas the bottom is purple and that outfit color schem isn't in the game. so...can someone clarify that for me? i'd like to do the white top/purple bottom cuz i think it looks nicer but i need more pics of her in that color scheme. and also...anyone have any ideas on how to do the details/embroidery-like designs on her outfit? thanks a lot. ^___^

My friend is going as her.

You can actually get her base shoes at Chinatown and modify it, and teh actual sword also.

The top, you can modify, and I suggest using bridal brocade. You don't even need 1/2 a yard for it (assuming you're a size 3)

The pants can be found at dance stores, and make sure that they're SKINTIGHT to the point of constriction, since jiggly thighs aren't pleasant (sorry ^-^;;). Then you can do the embroidery.

I like the final version of Xianghua, you know the one with black costum. But that's just me, I can kick some major bootie with Xianghua, but not as much as I can with Nightmare. Besides, there's just something about a hot game chick, with a snappy attitude ta match it!! lol @ himself because he is sooo pathetic. :rofl: :razz: :schitzo:

Yeah, I started a thread on that costume :] and it's still not finished yet. Really sad. Anyways: http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=20969

As for the inconsistencies, you're free to do what you like. I'm, honestly, taking details from both the artbook and the game. Make things a little more interesting.

yup that's the one. ^^ yeah, actually i bought a pair of those shoes in chinatown a while ago but i've never actually worn them cuz they hurt my feet and now they're discolored from navy blue into purple, which makes them perfect for me to kill and re-make into xianghua shoes. >=3 iono if i wanna bring an actual sword, O_o, but we'll see haha. thanks a lot for all of your advice!!! ^__^ i really appreciate it.

yeah, i like the black outfit best, too. but it's a bit too short for my mom to lemme outta the house with >.>;; and that slit's a bit too high for me also, haha. soo...imma just choose the blue one since i don't see a lotta ppl w/ it. i remember seeing a lotta red ones at AX and various sites. XD

yup, that's the one i'm planning to do. as for the embroidery (only thing i've thought up is fabric paint =\) and stuff, i still haven't figured out anything. actually, to be honest, i'm still in the brainstorming stage where i figure out what i can use to do what. haha. and AX05 IS quite a ways away. XD yeah, i know...i'm a procrastinator. >.>;

as for the sashes i'd say, light flow-ey fabric, if it's too heavy it might be hard to keep it sewed/stuck to the shirt. and the tiara thing...don't ask me just yet...*_* i'm still figuring that one out. lol.
